Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

May 11, 2012  By: Gretchen

What do you get the woman that has everything or wants nothing?  How about a gift to a charitable organization in her honor?  Here are three deserving charities that would be a great option to recognize and honor your mom.

With AfricAid you can help girls in Tanzania while you honor your mother.  There are two ways you can help;

1.  Come to Ten Thousand Villages in Cherry Creek (in Denver) on Friday May 11th from 5-8pm and a portion of your purchases will be donated to AfricAid.  OR

2.  Make a donation to AfricAid in honor of your mother, she’ll know that girls in Africa are receiving the gift of a brighter future because of her. Print out a donation certificate right from our website!!

Project C.U.R.E. – honor your mom (or the motherly cheerleader in your life!)  by supporting a mom in need through Project C.U.R.E.  Your tribute gift could send sterile dressings and supplies to an ill-equipped clinic so that a mom-to-be has a safe delivery, lowering her risk of infection. It could send a delivery table so that she doesn’t have to give birth on the floor. And it could provide incubators and infant warmers to keep her baby warm and healthy.

Make a donation to the Kellerman Foundation.  Since the Batwa pygmies were expelled from the Bwindi Impenetrable rainforest 20 years ago, they have lived in shocking poverty. Kellerman’s partner programs in Uganda are helping break the cycle of poverty through a broad-based approach of healthcare, education, community development, and skills training.

In the U.S., we celebrate Mother’s Day with flowers, food, and gifts. In southwest Uganda, mothers struggle to provide their children with a meager diet of rice and maize meal. This Mother’s Day, please consider a different kind of gift. Honor the women in your life by providing Batwa women a chance to change the future for their children.

Whatever you choose to do this Mother’s Day we at Africa Adventure Consultants wish you and your families the very best.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
